God is still moving

The Synoptics share several of the key theological themes, and certainly the portrayal of Jesus as the Lord of heaven and earth come in human flesh to restore the brokenness that has come as a result of the Fall in Genesis 3. With the emphasis on the Gospel writers demonstrating the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophetic hopes in the coming of the Messiah, we see the culmination and the fulfillment of God’s plan to undo the sin of Adam through the seed of Abraham. The Synoptics in a word are primarily about what God is doing in the world in and through Jesus Christ. Each author may emphasize different aspects, and theological themes, they were writing to different communities, and addressing different needs for each of these Christian communities.
